Marok (Thomas Marecki to his parents) is a graphic designer, painter, illustrator and all around maverick genius who’s creative radius ranges from publishing a magazine over t-shirt designs to animation for diverse video projects.
In 1995 Lodown magazine was founded by him. Pretty soon Lodown developed into a creative platform where ideas are exchanged and developed. As a result several video and books on contemporary art and graphic-design were published. Furthermore Marok participated in several exhibitions with the likes of Futura and Haze and held a couple of solo-shows in Japan, Australia, the UK and Germany. Until now, Marok still appreciates t-shirts as a perfect canvas for Pop Art. This resulted in designing for companies like Supreme, Stüssy or Newburgh as well as producing catalogues for Carhartt.
Marok（原名Thomas Marecki）是一位特立独行的天才平面设计师，画家，创作范围涵盖杂志出版，T恤设计以及动画制作。1995年，他创办了Lodown杂志。很快，Lodown杂志便成为了一个交流发展各种新奇想法的创造性平台，数个关于当代艺术的短片和书籍因此被催生。此外，他还与Futura和Haze等合作展出作品，并在日本，澳大利亚，英国和德国成功举办个展。现在，他仍钟情于以T恤做为一个完美载体来宣示他心中的流行文化，由此也让他与Supreme,Stüssy和Newburgh等品牌展开合作，也包括为Carhartt 设计产品目录等。
